Issues

ILRF raises awareness about working conditions in global low-wage industries -- especially in the garment and agriculture industries -- and educates consumers to push companies and governments for change.

ILRF campaigns for safe and dignified workplaces in the global garment industry; to end child and forced labor in cotton, cocoa and other agricultural sectors; to ensure women have equal access to defend their rights; to protect union leaders and union members from violence globally; and to support workers who seek to organize and bargain for decent livelihoods.

The root cause of repression of workers’ rights can be traced to limits on workers’ access to justice.
